      Description

      The current Java math libraries (java.lang.Math and java.lang.StrictMath) lack
      many methods found in the C math librariy (e.g. hyperbolic transcendental
      functions) as well as functions recommended by the IEEE 754/854 floating-point
      standards. Java's math library should be augmented to include these methods.

      The list of major math library methods added are

      log10
      cbrt
      hypot
      sinh, cosh, tanh
      log1p
      expm1

      Additionally, ulp and signum were added.
